Attorney Endorsements

  • Andrew Schwarz

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Ken is brilliant and has extremely good judgement. He knows when its time to fight and when its time to negotiate. He works hard, shows extraordinary respect for his clients, and he does what he sets out to do. I have served as co counsel with Ken on Civil and Criminal trials and have always found working with him to be a pleasure. I recommend him without hesitation.
